Tools to help consume and enrich content

Introduction

Because most of the information consumed lives as Web pages, most of the tools are Web browser extensions or products that closely integrate with Web browsers.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a popular Web browser developed by Google.

The app comes bundled with a Reading List functionality that allows the user to save any web page in a collection that you will be able to easily access in the future to access those back.

This is particularly useful for saving articles that you would like to read at some point when you have the time.

Interestingly, the same feature can be used to manage bookmarks. Unfortunately, one cannot enrich the saved pages with notes or annotations.
